Israel killed the grandson of Hezbollah leader

As a result of an Israeli strike on southern Lebanon, the grandson of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, Abbas Ahmed Khalil, was killed, as reported by the Israeli news portal I24news, citing Arab media. Together with Abbas Ahmed Khalil, two more Hezbollah militants who belonged to the “Imam Hussein Division” were eliminated.

Information about the attack emerged after the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced on March 2 that they had struck a vehicle in southern Lebanon where they believed members of the Shiite movement were located. After clarifying the information, the IDF confirmed the death of three militants.

The development was part of growing tensions between Israel and Lebanon amid the ongoing conflict in the Gaza Strip. On February 25, Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Galant announced Israel's intention to intensify attacks against Hezbollah, regardless of the development of dialogue with the Palestinian Hamas movement. Since December 2023, Israel and Lebanon have periodically exchanged fire, deepening the regional crisis.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, commenting on the situation, did not rule out the possibility of a large-scale conflict with Israel if the war in Gaza does not end in favor of the Palestinians. The deaths of his grandson and two Hezbollah fighters add personal drama to already tense relations between the movement and Israel, highlighting the high level of tension in the region.
